Typeset Mojo Monday!

In my defense I would like to point out that my card WAS in fact completed last night for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge but I was too exhausted to post anything last night. I’m awake now though and here is my card…

Mojo356 - Typeset Black and Vanilla - JIF

This is this week’s sketch from Mojo Monday.

Mojo356

Although the actual card base was Whisper White Cardstock, after I chose the DSP from the Typeset Pack, I bordered it with Very Vanilla Cardstock. Both the DSP and cardstock were sponged with Crumb Cake Classic Ink.

Using the Very Vanilla 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon to create a ribbon rosette finished off with a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center. And yes, I am working on the Ribbon Bundles, soon I promise, if only there was more hours in the day. 🙁

For the ruching across the card I used some of the beautiful new Very Vanilla 5/8″ Satin Ribbon – I am SO glad this is part of Stampin’ Up’s! ribbon selection now as it’s so wonderful to work with.

I was SOOOOO close!!!

Wow, I was this close, this close to having this card completed and posted last night until I remembered why I didn’t use the glue I had used last night very much anymore, choosing instead to always use sticky strip. It was of course the drying time, ugh! It all came back to me like a charging bull. 🙁

Anyways, one thing has led to another and here it is, NOT even first thing this morning rather late at night but regardless, here I am finally posting it. The basis of my card is this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch 323.

Mojo 323 Sketch

This is my card but I should warn you first not EVERYTHING is Stampin’ Up! PLUS I’ve utilized a couple of retired DSPs. On this occasion I’ve gone with the “feel”, not the product so I hope you can forgive me. (And it’s for my mother’s birthday next month!)

Mojo323 - JIF - Happy Birthday Enjoy!

The striped paper I’ve used is from last year’s SU Regals Designer Series Paper Stack which I’ve stamped Flowering Flourishes in that wonderful Illuminate Ink, both from this year’s Annual Catalog. Then I’ve replaced the thread over the DSP shown on the Mojo Sketch with strings of pearls sprouting from either end of the labels which have had the edges sponged in Crumb Cake.

Both of these labels have been cut from the same sized frame-lit, the difference being the Pink Pirouette cardstock was then cut in half so there would be a little showing on either end with the pointed middles snipped off.

The flowers were bought months and months ago from the local Dollar Store, and the light-bulb, well… that was the result of some late night shopping following a scrapbooking crop… need I say more. 🙂Mojo323 - JIF - Enjoy

 Of course it’s only now as I look at the card I realize the weight I’ve put in it isn’t the best for posting, lol!

How color can change things…

Preparing for a workshop last week which was focusing on heat embossing, I had the best time creating. I just couldn’t decide what design would be best so kept creating until it “felt” right.

This was one of my first creations. I just love how the silver embossing is so striking on the white vellum cardstock which I’ve then mounted on the silver glimmer paper. Of course, just a smidge of Cherry Cobbler always adds to the Christmas feel with the sentiment from Sassy Salutations finishing it off nicely!

Joyful Christmas - Silver - JIF

Having made the card in silver and white, I couldn’t resist trying it in a combination of Very Vanilla and Gold Embossing. The red this time was the red glimmer paper behind the flowers that had been fussy cut and mounted upon it. Aren’t my gold “balls” just the best, lol? I was determined to have gold balls in the center of my flower so I bunched up a mini glue-dot and doused it with gold glitter!

Joyful Christmas - Red - JIF

The final design used for the “Make & Take” was a combination of the two cards with Very Vanilla as the base but using Silver and Cherry Cobbler. The Frosted Finishes Embellishment completing the fussy-cut flowers perfectly.  At first I was concerned it may have been a tad plain but I’m relieved to say the ladies were MORE than happy with it, making me EXTREMELY happy! 😉
